An ongoing list of various noteworthy incidents, crimes and fire-calls throughout the day for Tuesday, May 3, 2011. This post may be updated and “bumped” periodically.
- 11:35pm: Noise Complaint
Hoboken Police are responding to City Bistro uptown for a noise complaint: “Loud music.”
- 10:35pm: Man assaults two women
In an apartment near 11th & Clinton, reports of a man who assaulted his wife and her sister. HPD was told that the women wanted to press charges against the man. However, once police arrived and sorted out the details – the story changed and no charges were pressed. Sound like that’s a recipe for a sequel, ya think?
- 7:35pm: Pedestrian Struck by Auto
A pedestrian was struck by a car at 4th & River Streets. This kind of incident is an epidemic in Hoboken…
- 7:15pm: Home Burglary
A woman who lives at 9th and Willow arrived home after work today and found out her apartment was burglarized. HPD en route to investigate.

- 6:00pm: Agitated Hoboken
Multiple instances of agitated or irate individuals. One – at the Cake Boss Line – a woman was going nuts there, and reports of a white male, baseball cap and jeans is “agitated and violent” near 89 Adams Street, shouting profanities and tossing garbage cans in the street.
- 5:35pm: Drunk Male Stripping
In the area of 310 Jackson St., reports of a “highly intoxicated male removing his clothes…” Just what you wanted to see after a long commute home.
- 5:15pm: Yet Another car accident
9th & Garden – another car accident.
- 5:05pm: Another car accident
Observer & Marin Blvd. – 2 car accident, no injuries. Imagine Hoboken with 70-story high-rises lining Observer Highway?
- 4:45pm: Three-Car Accident
Observer & Newark – 3 car accident, no injuries. Seriously – I can’t imagine how this happens. Then again, I walk around and observe for 15 seconds – then I realize why.
- 4:30pm: Shoplifting continues…
Another shoplifter apprehended at ShopRite Supermarket. This is also on the rise – and wasn’t included in the “Crime Stats” released recently. And no, Kim Kardashian wasn’t involved…
- 3:45pm: Vehicular Stuff
A minor accident at 2nd & Hudson – but apparently involved a pedestrian. No serious injuries – more like a “near miss.” And they said technology was supposed to advance humans… riiiiggght.
- 3:25pm: Gassy Pizza?
Reports of a natural gas leak at the HomeMade Pizza Company at 213 Washington St. – which is supposed to open today! Getting blown to smithereens isn’t a good way to make the Doomed Hoboken Business category here…
